Kurt Rusell he is one of the few actors who likes to keep his personal life separate from his work life, and he doesn’t like it when people use their fame to spread political views.
Kurt Russell, a firm libertarian is speaking out about why actors and entertainers should stay out of politics. Americans love entertainment, but when their favorite actor takes a political stance that opposes theirs, it could ruin the investment they have in that actor’s work.
Actor Kurt Russell said those who fought in the Civil War would not have been able to do “what they considered defending their life, their way, their style of living,” if it had not been for the Second Amendment.
Russell said, “I think there’s a very strong reason the Founding Fathers had for the Second Amendment.”
He explained his view on the reasoning for the Second Amendment, saying in part it was established by the Founding Fathers for certain protections of its people.
Russell said, “In reality, when we’re dealing with things like, terrorism, whatnot, we’re all going to have different opinions on how to do it. How to deal with it. Mine happens to be that, I think there’s a very strong reason the Founding Fathers had for the Second Amendment. And that is that no government ever hasn’t had to fight its own people, and its own people hasn’t had to fight its own government. We had our civil war. If that Second Amendment hadn’t have been there, those people wouldn’t have had the opportunity to do what they considered defending their life, their way, their style of living. So I agree with that. I think that’s an important part of our existence. It’s basically that simple.”
Co-host Joy Behar said, “I think people more object to the excesses of the Second Amendment. Not the Second Amendment. It’s the boom, boom, boom, boom, boom guns.”
Russell said, “And that’s where the debate comes in. I think it’s too bad the debate can’t remain civil, too. It’s hard to do. I talked about, sometimes talking about terrorism, whatever we do, we all have our opinion on that, too. Whatever we do, we’re a little late for the people who have died….and if you know somebody or you know a child that was maimed in that situation, I got a strong feeling that one’s opinion has a tendency to change then. So I just leave it open for interpretation by all different people and say, we’re all in this together. We’re going to hear people talk about it.”
Here is the intense exchange of words:
